The origins of the Maldon Little Ship Club go back to the 1920s from the formation of the London Little Ship Club, formed in 1926. By 1927 the idea of forming branches of the club was born, thus the Maldon branch was formed in June 1927 as an offshoot of the London Little Ship Club and bearing the title of “Little Ship Club Maldon Branch”, latterly to become known as The Maldon Little Ship Club. The Club acquired the current day premises, the old smithy on Hythe Quay, in 1951. By 1959 the premises were purchased with some minor covenants such as the building shall be used only as a sailing club.
Our aims are to promote the sport of sailing and the art of seamanship through training as an RYA accredited centre. We also have an active sailing and social programme and welcome new members who have an interest in the water and would either like to become actively involved with their own vessel or via our crew wanted scheme.There is a warm welcome waiting for members, their guests and visiting yachtsmen – access to temporary moorings on the tide or overnight is via the visitors pontoon on Hythe Quay which is suitable for shoal draft vessels which are able to take the ground.
At the recent Commodore’s Reception hosted by new Commodore Sue Woods, Mark Heard, Maldon Town Mayor, on behalf of the club, presented a Cheque of £11478 to Martin Wade launching officer of the West Mersea lifeboat. This money was raised for the RNLI in the Sponsored Row Race held last Christmas and John Rogers the organiser, thanked the many sponsors and participants including the “Basin Oars” ladies team who raised £3600 of this total.
Another cheque of £2700 was presented by David Harris to Richard Titchener of Sea Change to be specifically used for a residential Thames Barge Sailing trip for Plume School Year 9 students following the Prevocational Programme. This money was largely raised by MLSC members, in particular the initiatives of David Harris and Barry Fix.
